HDD Model: WD5000AAKS
Motherboard: ECS A785GM-M7 V2.0
When I plug the disk, it automatically starts beeping 5 fives. When I boot the machine, it starts beeping also 5 times. After that, it enter BIOS and beeps another 4 times.
The BIOS reads:
Auto-Detecting 3rd Master…IDE Hard Disk
3rd Master Hard Disk Error
Press F1 to Resume
Altough the disk is SATA, and when I press F1, Windows won’t boot up, it says:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key
In this case, CMOS recognize the disk but it has size 0 and vendor is empty. But sometimes isn’t recognized at all, and CMOS doesn’t show it either.
I tried another data cable, and another power cable, but it still the same. Any help will be appreciated.
